For size comparison the figure has been posed with Transformers Prime "Robots in Disguise" Voyager Optimus Prime, as you can see the "Beast Hunters" mold appears to be quite a bit beefier. A couple of the images also feature his wavemate "Beast Hunters" Voyager Predaking, so more images of him are likely forthcoming.
Enjoy the images mirrored below:

And he looks bigger than PRiD Voyager OP, which is good.
(I also suspect we'll be getting some in-hand images of Predaking soon.)

I planned on Smokescreen (and maaaaybe Starscream) to be my only Beast Hunters figure. Now that we know he actually looks really cool, guess I gotta fish out another twenty bucks. They better make an equally-bulky-and-badass Megatron.
I'm so happy they finally ditched the MechTech-like weapon. Stupidest idea ever.

I want to like this figure, but it just looks too simple. It doesn't even appear as though the feet can be placed flat.
This would be better as a Deluxe.
This must be a move on Hasbro's part to purposefully dumb down TFs; I can't imagine that the toy designers could get this bad at making interesting, poseable TFs in only a few years, especially after seeing the level of complexity in the ROTF figures and post-ROTF Generations figures.

Hey man, ROTF Jetfire and Rampage are pretty tough to transform. That's why I rarely touch Rampage nowadays.

Fortunately I'm content with my fe prime.

I was getting the same vibe. I couldn't quite place my finger on it.

I was thinking that too when I picked up Voyager Soundwave. Not the best fig, but pretty hefty. Hav'n't got a deluxe fog since Vehicon, but Smokescreen looks big as well.

HE'S SO METAL!
I love the Madmaxesque garbage truck mode.
That robot mode is pure concentrated baddassery. And that head sculpt... look like OP is tired of playing nice!
I'm looking forward to see him in store.
What's more, the voyagers are starting to look like voyagers again!

Dammit, Hasbro. Stop stealing my money.
